Greg Bird (ankle, knee) will take batting practice for the next few days with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Bird was forced to pause his minor league rehab assignment earlier this month after he fouled a ball off his right knee. There's no clear timetable for his return to game action. Bird originally landed on the disabled list in early May with a nagging injury to his right ankle. The Yankees appear increasingly likely to be in the market for a first base-type leading into the trade deadline.

Padres prospect Luis Urias went 2-for-4 on Sunday for Double-A San Antonio.

Ho hum. This is just what Urias does. He's not going to hit for a ton of power, he's not going to steal a ton of bases, but he's going to get on base. A lot. He's also looking like a legitimate candidate to stay at shortstop now, and if that holds, his value goes up substantially. Even if he has to move to second base, Urias is an excellent middle-infield prospect.

Cardinals prospect Delvin Perez went 2-for-4 on Sunday for short-season Johnson City.

Perez also scored a run and drew a walk, and was also caught stealing. The Cardinals first-round pick last summer, Perez has obvious talent; he's a plus-plus runner who can make all the plays at shortstop, and he also has some sneaky power potential from the right side. Applying these skills has been an issue at times, but that's not unheard of for teenagers. If you're looking for a long-term prospect at shortstop, Perez makes a lot of sense.

Phillies recalled RHP Ricardo Pinto from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

He'll replace Edubray Ramos on the active roster. Pinto had a brief stint with the Phillies last month and will operate in middle relief in his return to the show.
Jun 26 - 1:46 PM

Phillies optioned RHP Edubray Ramos to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Ramos, 24, has struggled with his control this season while posting a 5.52 ERA and 38/22 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. The Phillies still have high hopes for him in the long-term and will try to get him back on track in the minors.
Jun 26 - 1:44 PM

Padres prospect Cal Quantrill gave up two runs in just under seven innings on Sunday for High-A Lake Elsinore.

Quantrill scattered six hits on the afternoon, didn't walk anyone and struck out seven. The 2016 first-rounder is pitching in unfriendly waters, so his 3.59 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 67 2/3 innings become all the more impressive. He has one of the best fastball/change combos in the minors, and his slider has made progress as well. He should get a chance to pitch in Double-A before the end of 2017, but the Padres would be wise to take things easy on him, considering he's just a year removed from Tommy John surgery.
Jun 26 - 1:44 PM

Brewers prospect Corey Ray went 2-for-5 on Sunday for High-A Carolina.

Both hits were singles. Ray isn't having a terrible year in the Carolina League (.260/.340/.407), but he hasn't lived up to the lofty expectations just yet. There above-average to plus tools across the board offensively, but he's had more issues with swing-and-miss than anticipated. He's still one of the best outfield prospects in baseball, he's just not the fast-track player we thought he was. Not yet, anyway.
Jun 26 - 1:38 PM

Tigers prospect Matt Manning hurled five shutout innings on Sunday for short-season Connecticut.

Manning allowed just three hits and two walks in those five innings, and he struck out five. It's only his second start of the season, but he's yet to give up a run, and he's struck out 14 batters in just over nine innings. There's a lot of work to be done, but the Tigers first-round pick from 2016 has tremendous upside, and could be a top of the rotation starter if everything goes to plan.
